For fans of the third-party Twitter client Tweetbot, the developer behind the app has just issued a software update that adds quite a bit of new to the mix.
Back in April, Twitter confirmed that it was making some vast, sweeping changes to its APIs, and, as a result, third-party apps would have to remove or degrade their features.
If you have been a fan of Tweetbot app for Twitter on your Mac, then you will probably be happy to know that Tapbots has just launched a new version of the popular app.
Twitter API Changes Will Break Third-Party Twitter Apps Like Tweetbot and Twitterrific [Update: Twitter Responds]
Twitter has never really been friendly towards third-party Twitter client developers with its various API restrictions that force third-party apps into giving a sub-par Twitter experience. Now, with complete silence on one of its upcoming API changes that will negatively impact third-party clients, Twitter has frustrated the developers behind popular clients like Tweetbot, Twitterific, Talon, and Tweetings.
Tweetbot, one of the more popular third-party Twitter apps for Mac and iOS, has been updated to support the latest versions of Apple’s operating systems.
Tweetbot 4 is hands down the best third party Twitter client for iPhone and iPad. Yes, you don’t get access to all new Twitter features like Polls, but on the upside, there are no ads, there’s timeline position sync between all your devices and the user interface is much, much better. Totally worth the $9.99 asking price. Especially if you use Twitter day in and day out.
Now that Twitter has reclassified itself into a News app, moving away from the social network crowd, Tweetbot –a popular third-party Twitter app– has made it even easier to live tweet.
Tweetbot for Mac has plenty of noteworthy features, but for users of the app on Mac, the latest update might make it even more functional.
On June 4, Tweetbot 2 for Mac finally arrived, bringing with it plenty of new features and a brand new redesign that fosters in plenty of Yosemite-based aesthetics.
